Good-bye party for Edmonds mayor on July 1

A farewell party is being organized July 1 for outgoing Edmonds Mayor Gary Haakenson, and the community is invited not only to attend but — in these budget-conscious times — to also contribute to the cost.

The event will be at the Edmonds Center for the Arts on July1, Haakenson’s last day on the job before he assumes the role of Deputy County Executive at Snohomish County the following week. Haakenson served 11 years as mayor and four years as a city councilmember before announcing June 1 that he would be stepping down to take the county job.

Donations are being accepted to cover the cost of the venue and refreshments. If you’d like to contribute, you can stop by City Hall or make your check payable to Sandy Chase and mail to:
Sandy Chase, City Clerk
City of Edmonds
121 5th Ave. N.
Edmonds, WA 98020

Donations can also be made directly to the Edmonds Center for the Arts. Please note “in honor of Mayor Haakenson” and mail to:
Edmonds Center for the Arts
410 4th Ave. N.
Edmonds, WA 98020
